Panel Debate, Draw Art Fair, 19 MAY, 2019, Saatchi Gallery, London (UK)
April 30, 2019
On may 19th Koen Vanmechelen will take part in a panel debate at the Draw Art Fair at the Saatchi Gallery in London. Draw Art Fair London will be the first fair in the UK dedicated to modern and contemporary drawing. It aims to present all facets of drawing as a fundamental practice and to create a platform where rare works by modern masters and recent works from the 21st century will stand side by side. It will provide an unrivalled opportunity for visitors to discover the new, and to rediscover established artists.
The work of Vanmechelen is well known for the diversity of materials and mediums; a unique mix of paintings, drawings, photography, innovative 3D-techniques, video, installations and wooden sculptures. This makes the work of Vanmechelen deeply related with the philosophy of Draw Art Fair because the inclusion of painting, sculpture, photography, video and new technologies provides a dialogue between drawing and other mediums, illustrating the fundamental importance of the hand, making a mark, as the central role.
